SOLD OUT: Graphic Novel Your Life workshop
Online workshop for adults
19 November 2022
13:00 – 17:00
In this one-day workshop, you’ll learn how to turn your personal experiences or family history into a graphic novel with award-winning cartoonist Rachael Ball.
Rachael will guide you through the essential components of a successful graphic novel from character design to plot structure and boost your writing and drawing confidence.
By the end of the workshop you will have created a ‘key moment’ drawing for a scene and a plan to help you move forward with your graphic novel.
This workshop is for people of all abilities and no prior experience of writing or drawing is necessary. Our small class size of no more than 20 students will ensure you receive personalised feedback from Rachael and group support in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Rachael Ball is an acclaimed cartoonist with 16 years of teaching experience who started cartooning for cult comic Deadline in 1988. Her first graphic novel, The Inflatable Woman (Bloomsbury), was a Guardian Best Graphic Novel 2015 and her second, Wolf (SelfMadeHero), has been called “a timeless classic”. Rachael co-coordinates the London branch of Laydeez Do Comics.
